Re: EOS-1D Pro observations
Tim, Thanks for that, and yes I did know about the CF for the histogram view. I've tried just about all the variations during a heavy year of D30 shooting so far. I shoot rapidly moving objects primarily, and it turns out that for my particular purpose I prefer to just see the image itself when I press the display button.
When I move to a new shooting situation, or make major changes in how I'm shooting at a particular spot, I use the histograms for the first few shots till I get things dialed in just where I want (and it looks like the 1D is going to be very, very good at that process). But when I'm actually dialed in and shooting, the thing I need most is a quick check occasionally to verify that my subject got framed the way I wanted.
After taking a long look at Rob's 1D writeup and the full body specs, I have to say the new machine is going to be one heck of a full-featured camera, regardless of the various shortcomings. I have no doubt it'll make outstanding images, but again the price is rather painful.
Does anyone know what the little button on the back of the 1D is (there are two, one for regular shooting, and one for vertical shooting) that has the little frame symbol with the inward-pointing arrows? I don't recall seeing that symbol before...
